Well as most know I work overseas on a oil rig in Malaysia, So that means muslim rig which also means no PORK products.Christmas is a hard time out here but the locals do try hard to put on a good spread. I thought you might like to see the presentation of the turkey, I mean isn't that appetizing, Yum Yum dig in! Hope every one had a great christmas and enjoy the next couple of days off.

Hey,
just wondering wether anyone would be interested
I want to get an EH, sedan or wagon, im not fussy, and in doing so am interested in swapping a few cars out of my collection. I have got a 1955 FJ sedan, in good condition. is unregistered, but will pass inspection. Paint is good, and is mechanically good also. Just put rego on and drive. I also have a 1956 FJ ute, it is rusty, but complete. is original, but motor doesnt go. plus, i have a 1966 HR wagon. Original, with disc brakes, and the Best 186 ive seen. Rego ran out yesterday, but i have current RWC. Plus i have a [Naughty Pottyword]load of parts for FJs and HRs..

A few probs with my Tonner

How do I go about fixing one of my drum brakes that grabs at a point when I turn my rear right wheel ? it squeeks when driving slow and under braking the ute has a slow throbbing action and pulls to the left a little. easy fix ?
Also the lifters make a clicking noise, major prob ? or something simple ?
one more thing.. if I nail the accellerator there is a flat spot which I think has something todo with the carby (rochester quad) this is a delay of the secondarys opening ? Thanks for the help.

Leaded fuel??? what are people going to do

hi all, this question may have already been asked(if so sorry).
i am wondering what people are going to do now that lead petrol is very quickly becoming unavaliable. i know there are lead replacment that can be mixed with unleaded petrol but what are the other options out there to do.

how much does it cost to get a unleaded conversion done to a 308 and what is involved, what has to be changed,(easy to do yourself or not).

i am unsure when leaded petrol will be unavaliable but i thought i might plan ahead as that is the way things look to be heading.

any help would be much appriciated.

Valve Adjustment

Hi all. This is my first with entry/question with "oldholden.com" as a new member. As the topic I chose "Holden Info", but "Silly" may be more appropriate. My car is a Land Rover, which has a Holden 202 motor in it. I just recently had need to replace the head, and was able to find a Yella Terra which used to be a 149 type. The new head has adjustable valves, and I've used the matching rockers. My Christmas day drama was adjusting the valve lash. Info from a variety of sources (workshop manuals, engine rebuilders, friends) says to tighten an extra 1/4 to 1/2 turn, and others 3/4 to 1 turn, once zero lash is reached/found.

My EH

Hey yal,

Here's some pics of my EH and my Daily Driver.
My EH is Totally Stock 149, 3spd Coloumn, Has the Drip Lubericator setup under the hood but not connected. Inside it came with a no-frills 10cm Sub (the holes on the back shelf under the cardboard is perfect for speakers.), a set of 6x9's, and a set of 5" speakers under the heater in the front. Due to weather strips leaking the insideof the doors are lined with rubber spray and then glad-wrap covers the access holes, then the water flows in and out. It works but I'm keeping an eye out for rust.
I put Central Locking, keyless Entry, Alarm. I put a 10inch Sub in a box on the back seat, Fitted a Laptop (For Sound System and Entertainment).
